Inspiration Monday: farewell fairy tales

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Some interesting takes on the shoe mystery in the stories and in last week’s comments. I’ll never look at lost shoes the same way again. : )

Unrelated note: anybody else getting more spam comments than usual? In the last week I’ve gone from a handful a week to more than a dozen a day. What’s up with that?

Here’s the good stuff:


Chris and another


LoveTheBadGuy and another







The Rules

There are none. Read the prompts, get inspired, write something. No word count minimum or maximum. You don’t have to include the exact prompt in your piece, and you can interpret the prompt(s) any way you like.


No really; I need rules!

Okay; write 200-500 words on the prompt of your choice. You may either use the prompt as the title of your piece or work it into the body of your piece. You must complete it before 6 pm CST on the Monday following this post.

The Prompts:

Farewell fairy tales
All this time I was wrong
That’s not blood
Wandering knight
Broken string
